Intensive Outpatient (IOP)
Intensive Outpatient Program
For those who are assessed in the initial intake as using or abusing, but whom it is determined that chemical dependency does not exist along the five dimensions (e.g. tolerance, withdrawal, drug seeking, manage amount of use, and persistent use despite negative consequences) to the point of requiring a higher level of care, the Intensive Outpatient Program is determined to best meet the patient needs. Additionally, those who have met clinical objectives in the Intensive Outpatient Day Program, who have continued to build upon their recovery capital and strengthened their meaningful pursuits, it is determined that they step down to a lower level of care.
The Intensive Outpatient Program offers a customizable schedule Monday through Friday. Sober and therapeutic experiences continue to support the recovering person to gain insight into their disease management as well as life pursuits and the corresponding stresses and coping skills required to be successful. Patients continue to experience the tailored blend of experiential experiences, therapeutic education and process groups combined with individual therapy providing the recovery support to assist the recovering person to manage their recovery and also engage in life pursuits.
As the person in recovery continues to build upon their recovery capital, recovery support derived from formal treatment decreases as they develop greater recovery and life skills. The developmental process of recovery is reflected in the recovering person building upon their social affiliations and community based recovery support. Additionally, the recovery person demonstrates they have identified and are actively pursuing life’s meanings in career, education, familial relationships and personal interest that they find meaningful.

the phoenix difference
Perhaps the most profound aspect of the Phoenix Difference is our approach. While we are extremely deliberate in educating and supporting the client in disease management and better equipping them with the skills of developing a stable recovery capital experience, our focus distinguishes us as unique. Our focus is centered upon the spiritual meaning making, seeking, and fulfillment aspects of the human experience. Critical to the health, wellness, and thriving in the human condition is the process of having the “inner ear,” the capacity to discover what one believes in themselves and life, to draw upon gifts, strengths and support systems to pursue those goal directed meaning pursuits. To this end, our treatment is extremely individualized, with treatment objectives being largely defined by those awakenings and pursuits that exist within each client.
